In short, we are here to inform and educate. Our Board consists of a collection of Australia’s finest Gastroenterologists, Professors and medical minds – and we put those minds to good use! We specialise in medical research, with the goal to better understand the causes of gut problems, and further develop methods of prevention and treatment. Through our website we aim to provide a hub of information that all Australians can access and thus achieve our mission to ‘improve the digestive health of all Australians’.
Information booklets and brochures are now available only in PDF form. We understand that this may not suit everybody, however having digital files means that you will have instant access to information. We thank you for understanding.
We appreciate the question, but we hope you can also appreciate, we get a lot of them!
So just to be clear, The Gut Foundation provides general information to the public and medical practitioners. As such, we are not able to provide personal or individual advice or opinion. Truth be told – If we have a standpoint, you will find it on our website or social pages, so we recommend you dig deep and you’ll probably find your answer.
We understand that suffering from gastrointestinal conditions or discomfort can be distressing. Your first point of call is your GP. Your GP will be able to discuss your issues and if necessary, refer you on to a gastroenterologist. We understand that it can be uncomfortable to discuss these kinds of issues face to face with your GP, but be assured, they are there to help – so start the conversation.
Give us a call – our friendly staff will walk you through it.
